Abstract
 
Description
Beyond Neoclassical Economics is a remarkable introduction to the main heterodox schools of economic thought which examines their main concepts and their critiques of mainstream theory.Offering a wide spectrum of theory and viewpoints that both complement and challenge mainstream and conventional thought, this substantial volume explores schools of thought and traditions poorly covered in most conventional economics textbooks. The schools presented include Austrian economics, Geo-economics, the Virginia School of Political Economy, Institutional economics, Feminist economics, Humanist economics and Non-determinist Marxism. The papers in this volume have been prepared by leading scholars who offer new perspectives on conventional thought, as well as dialogue and commentary between their different approaches to economics.The aim of this major book is not only to understand the thought, methodology, and approach of various economic schools, but also to explain why there are different approaches to economics and how the different schools relate to one another.Contributors: J. Amariglio, P. Boettke, A. Callari, K. Feder, F.E. Foldvary, U. Grapard, S. Resnick, C.K. Rowley, D. Ruccio, W.J. Samuels, G.A. Smith, M.A. Vachris, C. Whalen, R. Wolff - from Amzon
